Dennis Woodside Said To Be New Motorola Mobility CEO

By: Chris Crum - February 23, 2012

If a tweet from Bloomberg is accurate, Google has found a new CEO for its Motorola Mobility unit. Google’s acquisition of Motorola Mobility received regulatory approval ten days ago.

The man would be Dennis Woodside, who currently heads Google’s Americas operations.

Bloomberg tweeted the following:

Update: Bloomberg now has an article to go along with the tweet. It cites “three people familiar with the matter” with revealing the news. It reports that Woodside would succeed CEO Sanjay Jha.

Woodside has been with Google since 2003. The following clip has nice little introduction to him:
